Swamp Witch

A strange creature rose out of the swamp today. It crawled out of my tackle box and deposited itself quite stubbornly on my knitting chair. As I watched it materialize, I attempted to capture it on camera. Its image did not register well--probably due to its supernatural constitution.

It appeared to have legs, but I was not sure.

At times a head emerged, without features or form.

It seemed to writhe and struggle for existence...

...which was fleeting, for soon it crawled back into my tackle box and was gone.

Now really, this is my knitting olympics project Swamp Witch--which is now finished! Hooray! It is also my Woman on the Edge of Time KTC project. My fur-child, Beamer, especially likes it!

Jenni - I just came from the Knit the Classics and wanted to make sure that I told you that I'm sorry about the "Ha, Jenni" comment. I meant it to be funny, not dismissive. That and I'm a know-it-all and I don't! Know it all. I just finished reading The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins this summer (who I had actually never heard of before that) and read there that he was credited as having the first detective novel but Edgar Allan Poe certainly could trump him for the title.

No problem! I knew you were joking. I was probably being the no-it-all! Thanks for reading my blog Carrie!

Wow Jenni!

I love your shawl and the Beamer dog looks like he loves it too!
LoL, the photo mystery was fun! I couldn't figure it out at first either.
Great job on the knit project! I sure enjoyed the WOTEOT book too!
